By now you've heard of Erie Community College's star player. Not so much because he's good, which he is, but because his parents did him the "favor" of naming him God's Gift.â†µ
"His name is the first thing that anyone asks about when they meet him," Erie coach Alex Nwora said by phone. "Everyone thought it was a nickname or something, but that's his real name. Fortunately, he's a religious kid, so he likes it."â†µ
G's G is a Third Team Division II All-American and he's received interest from St. John's, Pittsburgh and Tennessee, amongst others.â†µ
His teammates have taken to calling him "Gift," which is probably a good idea. Especially when you remember what happened to the last guy everyone called God.
